Literature Wales presents: Y Gadair Wag / The Empty Chair

Taliesin Arts centre, Swansea university - 25mins walk or a short drive from our guesthouse

 

Hedd Wyn, the young poet from Trawsfynydd, was killed in the trenches one hundred years ago, before he was announced as the Chaired poet of the 1917 National Eisteddfod. He became a symbol in Wales and across Europe of the waste and horror of the Great War.

 

Using film and experimental techniques, this new show by Ifor ap Glyn, National Poet of Wales, directed by Ian Rowlands, looks at Hedd Wyn's life and works alongside other WWI poets, and explores themes of loss and identity.

 

Funded by Yr Ysgwrn and the Welsh Government’s Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 First World War Centenary Programme and in partnership with Yr Egin

Alarm dispatcher Asger Holm answers an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. When the call is suddenly disconnected, the search for the woman and her kidnapper begins. Asger enters a race against time to save the woman but soon realises that he is dealing with a crime far bigger than he first thought.

 

"If the setting of ‘The Guilty’ couldn’t be simpler, its immaculate execution by first time director Gustav Möller couldn’t be more gripping and involving." LOS ANGELES TIMES

 

Thursday 21st to Saturday 23rd February

The Unreturning

Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University - 25mins walk or a short drive from our bed and breakfast

 

A Frantic Assembly & Theatre Royal Plymouth Production present:

THE UNRETURNING

A new play by Anna Jordan

 

In 1918 George returns from the Western Front. In 2013 Frankie is back from his final tour of Afghanistan. And some time in the not-too-distant future Nat returns from an overseas refugee camp to what was his hometown. Their stories are beautifully interwoven in this compelling new play featuring Frantic's celebrated physicality.

 

The Unreturning explores the profound effect that war has on young lives, and asks - what does coming home really mean? What is home? And when experience has shattered you into a million pieces, will home help to put you together again, or treat you as an ugly truth it does not want to confront?

 

All four members of the cast for The Unreturning were part of the Ignition programme, now in it's tenth year, before they went on to train professionally and pursue acting careers.

 

Recommended Age: 14+ Contains very strong language and themes of war and loss.
